Free Access to Online Courses on Journey of the Universe and Thomas Berry

Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim, Yale University, are offering four six-week online courses. Brian Thomas Swimme provides introductory comments. These are featured as a specialization under the title:  “Journey of the Universe: A Story for our Times.” They are available in English and in Chinese.

This specialization includes two courses on Journey of the Universeand a course on TheWorldview of Thomas Berry. Each of these courses can be taken independently, followed by an Integrating Capstone course. These are MOOCs available on Coursera to anyone, anywhere on the planet.

Learners may audit these courses FREE OF CHARGE(with the exception of the capstone course). Or learners may register for all of the courses for a small fee and, upon completion, receive a specialization certificate. The courses do not have to be completed within the six-week period, rather, learners may take the classes and finish at their own pace.


  • Journey of the Universe: The Unfolding of Life (film & book)
  • Journey Conversations: Weaving Knowledge and Action
  • The Worldview of Thomas Berry: Flourishing of the Earth Community
  • Integrating Capstone: Living Cosmology (only available as part of the specialization certificate—not available to audit)

The next set of enrollment date for the courses is February 26, 2019
